Now honeymooning in northern Wisconsin and Michigan are Mr. and Mrs. Roger Eckes, who were married Saturday afternoon at 3:30 o’clock in the First Presbyterian church in Abbotsford. The bride, the former Beverly Cendt, is the daughter of Mr. and Mrs. Howard Cendt, Colby, while the groom is the son of Mr. and Mrs. Peter Eckes, 822 Park ave., Wausau. Officiating clergyman at the ceremony was the Rev. Richard Harrison.

The bride wore a white full length gown with a Chantilly lace bodice and long sleeves. The skirt was of tulle over satin. Her veil of French illusion was net trimmed and had a lace edge. It was attached to a Juliet cap of lace. She carried a crescent bouquet of white gardenias, red roses and ivy.  

Mrs. Kathleen Barbian, Wausau was matron of honor for her new sister-in-law. Her ballerina length formal of orchid net with white embroidery had a tiered skirt. Her crescent-shaped bouquet was of red roses, white carnations, mums and ivy.
